We walked through the entire park. You can park up on the hill and walk. You have the option to drive through. There's a small barn/petting zoo where you can feed the babies grain for $1 or milk from a bottle for $3. We did both. They had baby goats, a bull and a donkey. The walk/ride area have longhorn...

The good thing is it costs no extra to drive your vehicle around this attraction, but the road around the 'safari' is very rough. You'll see a few deer (but we only saw one of the types), and some birds or ducks, and maybe a turtle at the pond. The fenced corrals have some farm animals, and a zebra, llamas,... More

Well, not a true safari, but this is a drive thru estate where there are many animals out in the fields for viewing. This was a great trip for the boys. After we did our drive, they loved the playscape, and the indoor taxidermy exhibits. Overall, this is unique for the area and a great place for a day trip.

I thought the park was very beautiful and great for small children. The price was very reasonable ($10 for adults) and well worth it to spend a full day there (get there early though because it closes at 4:30p). Its great that they let you bring food and drinks in so you can have a picnic in the beautiful grounds.... More

We recently attended the Joyful Noise wine tasting at the indoor facility and we were amazed at the life size, natural history diorama in this facility. It rivals many museums. What a treat to party along side such majestic creatures, all in our own backyard!

The inside is nice, but a little creepy. It needs to be dusted. Having something with animals sounds would be cool, too. There was a nice drive through "safari" that was cool.... though you see mostly deer. They were cute, though.

This was our 1st trip to AWF and we plan on going back again. It was a neat place to see. They did have your typical farm animals and some other neat animals as well. I was under the impression with the Drive Thru Safari that there were African animals but instead it was deer and Emus which was neat... More

Only $10 a person and a great chance to drive around and look at a lot of different animals. The petting zoo is really fun if you buy the $1 cup of food. The animals are really fun and let you pet them while they feed. The rest of the time you get to drive around and stop at each... More

The main grounds are great for small children. They will see horses, cows, goats...the usual farm animals with a few more exotic exceptions (but still bovine and equine family). The drive-thru "safari" is basically just a drive through the woods...where you'll see deer. Maybe. Yep. That's it. Don't even consider that a part of the attraction. You will pay the... More

This is a good destination if you have 4-9 year-olds in your group. No scary monsters, just friendly (or indifferent) creatures. Peaches 'n Cream in Litchfield is a good finale.
